  3. How the world has changed It's hard to believe how much the world has transformed in the past decade but our handy info graphic tells the whole story Charlie Jane Anders
  4. So what's changed? Technology has gotten unimaginably smaller and better — just look at the differences between an iMac in 2000 and an How the world has changed
  5. In-Spite of These Changes These Changes
  6. Did you know.......... Less than 1% of our population can fully utilize today’s technology. *National Bureau of Statistics <
  7. Handling Change For us to take advantage of these changes, we need to know what the future holds
  9. THE FUTURE OF No 1.
  10. What is Technology? Paul Zane Pilzer defines technology as a better method of doing something you already do more efficiently. We tend to think of technology as a new computer, a new semiconductor, something we don't
  11. What is Technology? If you drive to work and it takes you 30 minutes, and there's a better way of getting there in 25 minutes, that's better technology. In the twentieth and the current century, the personal computer and the Internet have been the greatest drivers to progress and economy - Paul Zane Pilzer
  12. The Computer “The Computer is the only product since the beginning of time that the maker or designer cannot determine or limit what it can be used for.”
  13. The Future of the Computer & The Internet “One hundred years ago, people were faced with the choice of learning to read or remaining illiterate laborers who would be left behind as have-nots in a rapidly modernizing world. Yishan Wong
  14. The Future of the Computer & The Internet In the coming century, being able to command a world that will be thoroughly computerized will set apart those who can live successfully in the future from those who will be utterly left behind.“ Yishan Wong
  15. Some Facts "Even with the *105million penetration of mobile phones with *less than 10% Smartphone and even less than 1% of our population can utilize these technologies, neither do we have local apps relevant and beneficial to this population "
  16. In Conclusion Technology changes so fast that what used to change in 60 years now changes in 6 years. Paul Zane Pilzer
  17. In Conclusion So what we see is the speed with which technology changes has accelerated so fast that technology defines our resources, defines our wealth and determines how wealthy we would be.
  18. No. 2The Future of No 2.
  19. Why? "The recession of 2008 wiped out the credit and asset bubbles that had been fueling over- consumption and overproduction around the world". Ken Robinson
  20. Why? "As the recession blew like a hurricane through the old industrialized economies it left a trail of failed businesses, oceans of debt and deep pools of structural Unemployment".
  21. Why? Among the worst affected are young people. As I write this, global levels of unemployment among young people, aged from 15 to 24, are the highest on record.
  22. Unemployment “Unemployment, while it is painful for the workers who are temporarily displaced, is a necessary and positive sign that the economy is growing". Paul Zane Pilzer
  23. What about Unemployment? "In essence, we are disengaging the work force from less productive businesses to be retrained for work in newer and more productive ones". Paul Zane Pilzer
  24. Today's Unemployment is a Sign of Things to Come “At the same time, this will be a period of highly selective prosperity; that is, only certain people, industries and economies will prosper". Paul Zane Pilzer
  25. Today's Unemployment is a Sign of Things to Come This is because the rate of change has become so fast, only those who are quickest to adapt to new technologies and the new markets they represent will be in a position to take advantage of this growth”. Paul Zane Pilzer
  26. Consider this... About ten years ago there were no social networks. Ten years before that we didn't have the Web.
  27. Consider this... If you work in the web programming, online marketing, or mobile phone industries… … your job did not exist twenty years ago.
  28. Consider this... Who knows what jobs will exist twenty years from now? The people out of work today will soon find jobs again. But the work won't be the same.
  29. One Opportunity “At a time when people are saying "I want a good job - I got out of college and I couldn't find one," every single year in America there is a standing demand for 120,000 people who are training in computer science”. President Bill Clinton
  30. No. 3 The Future of
  31. Language & Literacy: The last 6 inches of the divide “Over the past few years, the Internet has rapidly become part of the daily lives of most people in the first world. This trend in easy access to unlimited information resources for first world users mirrors the growing 'central- peripheral divide' in the developing world”: Andie Miller
  32. Language & Literacy: The last 6 inches of the divide “The concentration of wealth in the major urban centers and the increasing marginalization of people in the peri-urban and rural areas. The result of both trends is that the majority of the world's population, particularly on the African continent, has limited access to most information resources”. Andie Miller
  33. The Truth is... "The future's already happened, it's just unequally distributed." a quote by science fiction writer William Gibson.
  34. The Truth is... I don't think Gibson, who coined the term "cyberspace" in his 1984 novel Neuromancer - a book which he wrote on a manual typewriter - ever dreamt what this word would come to mean in contemporary society, and just how everyday its usage would become in less than 20 years”.
  35. The Truth is... “Sadly it remains every day, however, only to a 'select' few. A small minority of people on the planet, who have access to the technology, and the skill to use it, come to be known as the "digerati".
  36. The Truth is... “The Computer needs to speak our language and vice versa. Until technology is applicable in our local language and appropriate applications that allow our huge population to benefit from it we would continue to look at technology as foreign and reserved for a selected few”. Dr Adegbola
  37. Bridging the divide " if technology is shaping the ways that we practice literacy in today's world, it is certainly also the case that literacy is acting as a gatekeeper for accessing and using technology" M Warschauer
  38. Bridging the divide "The real threat of a digital divide in the US and the world is not that some people will have computers and some won't, but that they will be enabled to use them in entirely different ways, with one group able to muster a wide range of semiotic tools and resources to persuade, argue, analyze, critique and interpret, and another group, lacking these semiotics skills, limited to pre- packaged choices". (Castells, 1996/2000; Warschauer,

  40. Information Today, real life means mobile. We consume more media on smartphones than computers and tablets combined. We spend 82 percent of our mobile media time in apps, and Facebook accounts for 23 percent of that in-app time. In short: apps are the mobile web, and Facebook is the most used app in the world Jason Stein
  41. Information Between conversion pixels and database partnerships, companies can begin to track the purchases made online and offline by people who saw or engaged with their native ads. This gives incredible access to information and data today we never had available in history before now. Jason Stein
  42. Data "Errors using inadequate data are much less than those using no data at all.” Charles Babbage
  43. Making Sense of Data and Information At the heart of any management system you need good decisions and good information. In his book on Leadership, Rudy Guiliani, ex-mayor of New York tells how timely access to accurate information helped improve decision making in New York City’s fight against crime. Elearn
  44. Making Sense of Data and Information New media (particularly electronic media) have made it possible to communicate information faster and more directly and through many more channels. From e-mail to pagers and mobile phones, PDA’s, wikis and Intranets, the options to present information through different channels and formats is now immense. Elearn
  45. Making Sense of Data and Information With the explosion of electronic information, information has become more readily available and far exceeds that which most organization or its people can handle. Instead of information being pushed to the users, the new rule is to expect the users to pull information from the system when they need it Elearn
  46. Making Sense of Data and Information Why are some people better than others at problem solving and decision making? One important characteristic that differentiates effective decision makers is their ability to think critically. Managers who are critical thinkers use information , both qualitative and quantitative, to help arrive at and to present the most reasonable and justifiable position that is possible. Elearn
  47. Making Sense of Data and Information Ultimately the tremendous amount of information that is generated is only useful if it can be applied to create knowledge within the organization. Building and managing knowledge is one of the greatest challenges that faces organization in the twenty first Century.
  48. World Wide Web The biggest source of secondary data is now the World Wide Web and you need to be able to

  50. What is missing? “Our schools haven’t changed; the world has. And so our schools are failing”. Tony Wagner
  51. Think about it “Children, young children, starting elementary school this year will be retiring 'round about 2070, if they ever do retire. Think about that. 2070. Nobody has the faintest idea what the world will look like in 2015, or 2020, let alone 2070".
  52. What is missing? "And yet those of us who work in education have the responsibility to enable the students for whom we're responsible to live lives with meaning and purpose as they progress through the twenty- first century and beyond it. So there's a genuine revolution. Now every country in the world is trying to grapple with it". Sir Ken Robinson
  53. What is missing? In today‘s highly competitive global knowledge economy, all students need new skills for college, careers, and citizenship. The failure to give all students these new skills leaves today‘s youth and our country at an alarming competitive disadvantage.
  54. What is missing? “The greatest challenge is creativity in Africa which comes out of an incomplete education.
  55. We are “Certified but not Educated” We are “Certified but not Educated” It is the attitude of chasing after certificates and not an education that has become the bane of our society. The problem in the society today is that skill is yet to be developed in people. We are yet to come to a place where we truly use our education to create wealth”.
  56. Where Do We Go From Here? Go From Here?
  57. Now that we know the 5 Reasons........... What can we do about
  58. Skate to where the puck is going to be Wayne Gretzky was once asked why he is such a good player. His reply? “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.”
  59. Skate to where the puck is going to be Make sure your company is not simply chasing where other companies in your industry have been. The true ability of a successful company is to skate to where the industry is going to be. Jeffrey Monaghan

  67. The Seven Survival Skills for Careers, College, and Citizenship 7. Curiosity and Imaginatio n
  68. Computer Programming The program that best covers these survival skills is Computer Programmi ng
  69. What Is Coding? The word coding is a slang term for computer programming, used because programming basically means writing source code. Emma Mulqueeny
  70. What Is Coding? These actions are understood by the computer in what is known as binary code, that lovely series of ones and zeros loved by Hollywood futuristic films Emma Mulqueeny
  71. Critical “We consider it critical that students be able to read and write and understand math, biology, chemistry and physics. To be a well-educated citizen in today’s computing- intensive world, students must have a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of computing as well.“Chris Stephenson
  72. Critical “Whether our children want to become farmers, doctors, teachers, or entrepreneurs, it’ll be easier for them to achieve their dreams in the digital age if they have some background in computer science. We need our children to learn 21st century skills for a 21st century world, and coding teaches them the creativity and problem-solving skills that are necessary for success.“ John Thune
  73. Our Give every child in our community the chance to learn to code. It is our aim to equip the next generation with this essential skill to learn.
  74. Consider This “I think everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer because it teaches you how to think.”
  75. How? 1. We believe and think every individual, parent, kids; youth should be encouraged to start to learn to Code no matter what they want to do or are already doing in life. This will teach them to think and solve problems.
  76. How? 2.Campaign for, encourage and assist schools and parents to introduce coding and computer programing into their curriculum.
  77. Do you know? “The most popular class at Harvard today is Intro to Computer Programming, because computers are helping in almost every other field of study and research - to search for a cure for cancer, to understand the origins of ancient languages, etc. We need more schools to offer computer programming; it's a skill that will empower the next generation in almost any field. Learning to code is easy, fun, and a good thing to learn young. Harry Lewis
  78. How? 3. To provide a melting point for leading hardware and software providers and developers as well programers and programing firms to meet and work together and to come up with relevant applications for our local community and language
  79. Consider This "The point is that the world does not need more code for its own sake, but better and more universal thinking about code" Jeff Atwood
  80. Why Code? Just the attempt to try to learn JavaScript, as Codeacademy starts students out with, is a useful and eye-opening exercise, no matter what you do in life. Jeff Atwood
  81. Why Code? “Here we are, 2013, we ALL depend on technology to communicate, to bank, and none of us know how to read and write code. It's important for these kids, right now, starting at 8 years old, to read and write code
  82. Why Code? Kids spend an increasing portion of their lives interacting with and through screens about which they know little or nothing.
  83. Why Code? The more they do so, the more they accept the values of Facebook, Google, or iTunes as pre- existing conditions of the universe. Instead of opening their minds, technology shuts them down.
  84. Why Code? Compounding all this, the few places most young people have available to learn about computers tend to teach them how to use and conform to existing software applications rather than how to make their own.
  85. Why Code? Introducing kids to code reveals to them how computers are really “anything” machines, capable of doing pretty much anything we
  86. Why Code? "It gives them the ability both to read and to write in the foundational languages of the digital age and, in doing so, fundamentally transforms their perspective from that of user to maker, consumer to creative”.
  87. Strategic Partnership In strategic partnership with leading hardware and software providers and developers as well as programming firms we would be using simple coding curriculums from, code and just to mention a few to develop appropriate and relevant courses and programs
  88. The Scratch Program Scratch is a programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art -- and share your creations on the web.
  89. The Scratch Program As young people create and share Scratch projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.
  90. Everyone Can Learn To Code Children, Youths, Educators and Parents
